Style Practice by lunarapologist Style Practice by lunarapologist
Well, didn't really have a lot of time this week (whoo, last week of classes before finals!), but I'd really been looking forward to this :iconmlp-atg-alumni: bonus theme - draw in another artist's style!

So... Hellpony! (I'm a fan of Mignola's hard-and-fast inking style, so I thought I'd give it a go!)

I think it turned out okay! I'm really not used to doing that kind of high-contrast inking, though. Still, that was kinda the point of the theme - to get outside that comfort zone!

In all honesty, I am seriously thinking about getting this tattooed. If it's OK with you!

I think you did awesomely. Mignola is a toughy.

You should take a look at his line art and perhaps post this image in that format. It would be epic.

However your character is accurate and the colouring is a good match to the comics. Well done.

Thank you! I really wasn't sure if I should go with two like in the comics, or the unicorn horn.

The one horn is better, it keeps true to the show, two horns would have made him look like some kind of moose or deer

On a gathering storm
comes a tall, handsome stallion.
But hidden in his coat
is a RED RIGHT HOOF!

I'm sorry. This is awesome. The chopped-off unicorn horn just makes it.

Oho!
Not bad!
Not bad at all!
It's a long time since I've seen any Hellboy around... I never read (and probably will never read) the comics, but I enjoyed the movies.
I really like how you converted him into a unicorn with a sawed off horn xD Very smoothly done =D

Now the only thing we need is a fanfic of it.
Preferably one based on the movies, so us who haven't read the comics will be able to follow it.

This.... is pretty freaking amazingly awesome. Though, I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with me in that I immediately thought: Now we need a picture with this guy, Rapidash-Twilight and Seapony Lyra.
